     Meena will be providing many items for you to play with, including crimpers, embossing folders, net, transparencies, stamps, stencils, watercolors, and window screen. She will also bring manual dies and die cutters, to speed things up!

“Creating a vat and working with Indigo & Resist Techniques”                                                                            Workshop Fee - $80

     

     During this day and a half workshop, you will help to create a working organic indigo vat and learn various resist techniques including stitching, folding, and clamping that will allow you to manipulate your fabric to create unique and stunning surface designs. Using indigo, a deep blue natural dye known for its striking color and influential history, you will learn about how this natural dye, once more expensive than gold, impacted societies across the world and understand why it is still a revered dye to this day. You will take home a silk scarf, a cotton bandana, an indigo vat starter so that you can create your own vat at home, and a working knowledge of how to keep your vat alive and healthy for many projects to come.
